Restoring implants has never been simpler.

This hour-long lecture will teach you everything you need to know about the restorative phase of dental implantology. Dr. August de Oliveira first explains what makes some scan bodies better than others and what to consider when selecting the best titanium base system. He will also review your options when manufacturing implant-supported restorations in-house, outsourcing to a lab or a milling center, and outsourcing to design centers only. This is the second lecture of this series, in the first lecture we covered everything you need to know about digital implant planning.
